Animal Shelter say they had to check Dolly's owners were the right people

A dog left at Glastonbury Festival, and which Dolly Parton had offered to re-home, has been reunited with its owner. The animal shelter in Shepton Mallet was reluctant to hand Dolly the dog back to her owners because of welfare concerns, but said they were forced to legally.

In a statement, they added that they would be supervising the owner's care. Lyn Southway from Happy Landings Animal Shelter says they needed to make sure the people were really Dolly's owners.
